    The ISO has historically been made as minimal as possible.  I agree
    with you that the ISO should contain compilable kernel sources.  They
    dont have to be automatically installed, but we ought to be add them
    to the ISO as a gzip'd tar.

    Try burning a recent build of HEAD.   There's a good chance that the
    particular panic referenced (a serializer panic) is fixed in HEAD.  If

It had been fixed on HEAD :-)
